Johannesburg, 7 June 2018 – The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) has amended its by-laws to permit the issuing of public statements by the SAICA chief executive officer (CEO) regarding the institution of any complaint or investigation or action against a member once a draft charge sheet or a charge sheet has been issued to such member and such matter, complaint, investigation or action is, in the opinion of the CEO, in the public interest. This decision is aimed at ensuring that the transparency of the SAICA disciplinary processes is enhanced.
SAICA hereby informs stakeholders and the public that the disciplinary hearings of:
Mr. Khayelihle Sibusiso Sithole; and
